South Africa Telecommunications Q1 2019

Key View:

Mobile and wireline data services offer the best growth opportunities in the otherweise saturated market. There is scopefor upselling as the majority of South African subscriptions are low-value prepaid SIMs and demand for smart phones is drivingoperators' revenues. The key determinant of how the broadband market develops is the successful auction of high-value 4Gspectrum planned for April 2019. The regulator is becoming more and more active in determining aspects of operators' pricingstrategy and has affected the larger operators' profits by slashing MTRs. Operators need to be careful regarding the range and priceof their services to retain customers in a market with limited opportunities for organic growth.
